    Overwatch 2019 - Rumors & Discussion

    They are exclusives to certain retailers in most (if not all countries in Europe.) in the UK they are an Argos exclusive but you can also get them from Lego.com and Amazon.

    REVIEW: 75973 D.Va & Reinhardt

    Great review of a very satisfying build. The dVa mech is amazing and I was pleasantly surprised with the Rheindhardt build too. His helmet (would’ve looked great on a minifig Sauron!) is a bit loose but I’m not overly concerned with that. i think the number of stickers is completely appropriate for the Overwatch theme. Kids and big kids who love the game will want plenty of stickers.

    Great shout on the Lego extra stickers. I think the sprays would be a perfect fit for this. Sprays are a popular part of games nowadays and this would be a fun way to get them. i think Orisa would be dVa / Rheinhardt scale. I got the BlizzCon Bastion and it goes superbly with the figures. The large bastion had to be big to allow for the transformations into tank and turret form. Got to say I loved the sets. Kids have already built an extension for Hanamura.

    Due to the amount of time needed to design and develop sets and considering Ashe has only been out a few months I find her inclusion to be less likely unfortunately. Orisa is also a common ingame choice of character especially when paired with Bastion. Don’t the summer wave usually surface around end of May? Be nice if they coincide with the anniversary event.

    Very good points. Volskaya would be an attractive option for TLG but although Zarya and Sombra are obvious choices I don’t see them making a set based upon just those two. I think Orisa is likely here.

    Overwatch 2019 - Rumors & Discussion

    Good to know! I might have a go at doing that so thanks for the heads up. This theme could present some very interesting mash ups. I might even put a payload on one of my train tracks and make some interesting set pieces to surround it. If LEGO are indeed testing the theme out with an older demographic then that could bode well for future themes. I just wish Mass Effect was still popular. That would've looked amazing in LEGO form. I'm actually excited to see how this theme performs, if it takes off well then we could see some amazing sets to come out of this. I am going to keep the faith that we will see more sets in the summer, I like complete collections so I won't be satisfied until we have at least all of the original roster. I don't make guesses usually but I would think we might see a Junkertown, including one of the more recognisable payloads plus Junkrat, Roadhog, possibly a brick built Wrecking Ball.

    Overwatch 2019 - Rumors & Discussion

    I don’t think Overwatch is a one and done. I’m pretty sure when they announced it that part of the reasoning behind taking the license was their excitement over the future of overwatch specifically and not general blizzard IP’s. While WoW castle theme sounds amazing they may hold back with the potential movie sequel seemingly stuck in development hell. They’d need to be convinced enough of their target audience are playing the game right now to make it worthwhile. When do we usually start hearing leaks from the retailer catalogue?

    It’s interesting for me that since this theme has come out my kids have gone back to overwatch in a big way. The oldest one (12) even plays it more than Fortnite. It would be great to see kids getting behind the theme and rejuvenating it a little as it has flagged a bit. i think the sets are great and it will be interesting if they tried to hit a second wave around late May when overwatch traditionally have their anniversary event.

    So at the risk of sounding incredibly selfish as the first wave has only just been released...when do we usually start getting information on the summer waves?

    Overwatch 2019 - Rumors & Discussion

    Yes it’s legit, and I’d recommend playing it as it’s awesome! Fortnite has the current momentum but Overwatch is so slick and requires real teamwork. there is actually a bit of blood if you look for it but on the whole it’s not something that will upset kids.

    I think Reinhardt should be in there from a character perspective but in what size? We could see a high number of big figs in this theme. Unfortunately, that probably means one or more would miss out. i would love to see Junkrat and Roadhog. Their blizzard animation is brilliant and they’re favourites with the kids. These sets must have been in design for some time already which may mean a no to the more recent characters. Completely agree on Mercy! She is a must, as is soldier 76. I don’t know about Ana, too many reasons against her as one of the initial characters I think but what do I know.

    Wow it’s been a long time since I posted on EB! Glad to see there is finally some more news. I heard six sets mentioned though...🤔 At what point do people normally start getting leaks from the retailer catalogues? As a huge fan of Lego and Overwatch I really don’t see a d2c here. Kings Row would seem like an obvious set and the payloads give plenty of vehicle opportunities. As they like to have traditional hero/villain battles I would definitely expect to see Reaper and Widowmaker at the least. Dva, Tracer and Winston must be certs too.

    LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    I'm as frustrated as everyone else about the lack of Rebels sets hitting the shelves but it comes at a time of an unprecedented amount of new SW films which will suck up the majority of TLG's resources. I know people are saying that the sets are underperforming but do we have any concrete figures to back this claim up? I agree with a lot of the comments about some ships that could have easily been made into sets but if you're in marketing at LEGO what are you more likely to want to develop? A new First order Tie, Vader's Tie or the Yellow Tie from the rebels episodes? One has obviously got to miss out and unfortunately it is pretty obvious which one that would be. There is a heck of a lot of freemaker-bashing on here so I think people just need to bear in mind that this is a toy and the free maker series appeals to a lot of kids! As passionate as many of us are over both LEGO and Star Wars we have to remember the sets are for them, not for us. With the available resources they have I think TLG do a really good job of keeping AFOLs happy. The new Bounty Hunter pack is fantastic and the First Order pack too. My kids are massively into the Clone Wars cartoon again at the moment so the tank is a very welcome addition as I missed this first time round. Does anyone have any idea on when we might find out about the summer retailer exclusives? Love the new banner! Looks great.

    LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    I see what you're all saying but the Ewok Village and Sandcrawler are retiring so what fills that void? I don't think you can say the Death Star does because TLG know that only hardcore fans or mega rich parents would buy that. The other two are somewhat achievable for people to be able to afford buy their kids (and themselves!) By contrast, neither Slave 1 or the Tie Fighter are listed as retiring. I guess it depends on what sets seem to sell best. I personally would love to see the sales figures on these kinds of sets as although the margins may be extremely high I would expect the volume to be fairly low.
